Playing For Keeps: A Neighbor From Hell Novel

Playing for Keeps - R.L. Mathewson This was a cute short read, something outside of what I normally would pick up. Jason is fun, but Haley doesn't come off as shy as she's supposed to be. Sometimes the characers come off as very cartoony. The beginning was a little choppy with lots of info dumps. Then the relationship - it was good, built slowly you got to really like Jason and Haley, but their fight is one of those really stupid, "if only we talked sooner" misunderstandings. IMO a cheap plot trick, so the characters ended up feeling more shallow, because they are essentially fighting over nothing just to set up sexual tension. Then of course, there's a great big whopping HEA. While it is cute, the tone is very juvenile, which gets irritating after a while.
